Thank you for your question.

I can understand wanting to remove the bake on food from the inside of the toaster.

This toaster has flat heat ribbons and you could damage them if you reach in with a tool to clean the heaters.




Then tip the toaster up side down and lightly tap on a toweled surface on the counter. This will get all the loose stuff out.

It should also have a clean drawer or trap door underneath that you can open to help clean the insides.

If you still have stuff baked on the element and lift and lower assembly carefully scrap with a non-metal instrument to remove what baked on food you can with out damaging the elements. You may not be able to get it all out.

When you have gotten all you can run the toaster a number of times back to back to see if you can burn out some of the stuck on debris. (It will smoke)

I hope this information will help you with cleaning your toaster.

Thank you for using Manage My Life.
